Having spent a couple of weekends at the anglers rest ( in my campervan on the carpark f.o.c.) and using the pub with friends on one wknd occasion to raise money for charity i can only say what wonderful hosts beryl and graham are inc. their staff. Yes the beer might be a few pence dearer than my local but it is kept and presented well as were the drinks my partner and daughter were served. We have only had bar meals but again quality at a good price. Regards dogs and a wecome for hikers, there is a room of comfort for hikers with dirty boots/gear and their dogs ( not many places i know like this and i do travel a lot and have 3 dogs) in the main room their own two dogs do wonder round but at no time have we known even when eating do they bother you, this is nice to see. If i had read some of the reviews here before hand i would have steered clear, i am only grateful that i experienced the anglers rest myself.
